The Manhattan Institute hosts a panel discussion on the shale oil industry. Topics include technological developments in the industry, oil production capacity in the U.S., shale development overseas, and the impact of fossil fuels on the environment Topics: Discussion on Shale Oil Production, Television Program Source: Comcast Cable
The material data safety sheets for a oil/gas production drilling product Air Foam HD. Toxicity information, inhalation information, skin contact information. Air Foam HD contans a large amount of the chemical 2-Butoxythanol (2-BE) which is toxic to humans and animals. Additional documentation includes endocrinologist and zoologist Dr. Theo Colburn's statement to the U.S. federal government about the risks associated with using 2-BE for oil/gas production. Topics: chemical hazards, material data safety sheet, natural gas, oil production
The topic this week was the Tar Sands issue. Joining us on Shades of Green Energy Radio at 91.7 FM were Environmental Advocate and Chemical Engineer, Chris Wilson and Trevor Lovell from Public Citizen Texas and Statewide Director of ReEnergize Texas. Wilson by no means minced words when it came to discussing the Tar Sands project and the Keystone XL pipeline proposed to transport the bituminous sands to the US. The true weight of the issue came alive as Wilson described the tar sands problem as... Topics: Tar Sands, Environmental effects of Tar Sand oil production, Canadian Tar Sands
Professor Heinberg explains what ?peak oil? means. The theory of peak oil started with M. King Hubbert, who said that global oil production would decline. Predictions for when global oil reserves will run out vary but there is general consensus on oil depletion. Topics: news&information, what does peak oil mean, define peak oil, what is peak oil, peak oil theory,...

In this paper, we have done some important analysis of bio-oil obtained from the pyrolysis of coffee and eucalyptus sawdust in the presence of 5% Hydrogen. The bio-oil was obtained in one step pyrolysis in which temperature of the system was kept 25ºC and then increased up to 850ºC. After pyrolysis the obtained dark sticky liquid (highly viscous bio-oil) was introduced to thermal cracking. During thermal cracking the bio-oil was condensed at two different temperatures 100ºC and 5ºC so we...

Professor Heinberg explains the effects of ?peak oil?. The theory of peak oil says that global oil production is in decline. Because our economies rely so heavily on cheap oil, global oil depletion will affect everything from transport to housing to food supply. Topics: news&information, effects of peak oil, what happens when we run out of oil, oil depletion, what...
